Let’s Chase Away the Doldrums… Sassy Challenge #58, Bold & Bright

Apr5 blk

I’m hosting our Sassy Challenge today.
It’s Spring, and I’m ready for some COLOR!

Our challenge is BOLD and BRIGHT !

First, a little story. This is Scout and Ryan (Scout is the llama) in their Showmanship class at the Ohio State Fair llama show last year.

I’m in charge of “begging” people for money to sponsor our awards. I make the donor a nice thank you card along with their name being put in the program etc.

A while back I asked our ever-so-talented Cheryl, if she could come up with a llama I could use for this year’s sponsors and some special gift certificates I have to make. I sent her links to my llama pictures, and while she was inspired by them all, Scout appealed to her digi nature and became Dawn’s Llama the digital stamp!! How FUN!!!

It’s colored with Copics, sponged with Distress inks, I also added some Flower Soft around his feet. Ribbon, Spellbinders Labels 17, two Sizzix embossing folders and Martha Stewart’s Garden Gate finished off my tent card. The sentiment is Penny Black.

If llamas got you curious, here are more pictures….enjoy!

For more Sassy inspiration,
see what the other girls have done!
